Nothing. I do not like the thought of using anyadditives in my engines, transmissions, fuel system, or hydraulic components unless it is already in the container.
I have already rebuilt the carbs, replaced my fuel tank, and replaced filters/screens, so I would like to think my system is clean. Also, it is warm enough here tokeepmy bike running to prevent thegas from stagnating.
On all my other engines, if I suspect a fuel problem, it is easy enough to take the carb apart, check the bowl, or give it a shot of carb cleaner. 1-5minutes and it's apart and I know the condition.
If I were to develop a problem on the wing, Iprobably would useseafoamsincethe carbs can not be readily taken apart. But, Iwould not use it religiously. If you do, it is either a waste ormasking a true carb problem that requires true maintenance, IMO. Some may call it PM.
What fuel additives are approved to beused with AVGAS? And, how often is an airplane recip carb to be taken apart for regular scheduled maintenance?
Can Seafoam be used in A/C, why or why not?
